EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

During a meeting with reporters in Boca Raton, Fla., on Tuesday, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was asked what made him think that Howie Roseman deserved to be back in charge of the franchise's player-personnel department after Lurie had fired Chip Kelly in December. "The whole plan was for Howie to really spend the time studying state-of-the-art decision-making around the globe in sports," Lurie said. "We really opened it up, from English Premier League, NHL, NBA, MLB - try to find who the best general managers or 'head of basketball operations' were.

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Part of the beauty in taking charge of a professional sports franchise is that while the winning clock is certainly ticking, it really isn't that loud for a while. Howie Roseman, who is back in control of the Eagles, never really went away, but his power did while Chip Kelly tried his luck at team building. That means Roseman gets a full reset on his clock now, with lots of time to get things right. Roseman is taking full advantage of that luxury this offseason. He has committed $280 million in future contract guarantees, some of which had to be done sooner rather than later, but some of which didn't.

Fletcher Cox received a message this week from a teacher in his hometown of Yazoo City, Miss. The teacher assigned her students to write what they wanted to be when they were older. Six wrote "Fletcher Cox. " "You get a lot of kids back home that's like that, and it's a lot of kids that look up to me," Cox said. "I look at it as this is where I came from. And I try to put it through so many young kids' heads that you can make it out of Yazoo City. I tell them if you have the 'want to.' You have to have a plan.

From the moment he joined the Eagles as a front-office intern in 2000, fresh from Fordham Law School, Howie Roseman spent his formative years as an NFL executive helping his mentor usher in a revolution and bearing witness to the bitter fallout. As the Eagles' president then, and with Roseman working alongside him, Joe Banner pioneered the two-pronged strategy that became a staple of business in a salary-cap world. The Eagles would sign players whom they perceived to be part of their long-term future to cost-effective contracts, and they would be willing to say goodbye - maybe a little too soon - to some of their most popular, respected, and expensive veterans.

A COUPLE beads of sweat topped his forehead and a huge grin was impossible to hide. Meet Fletcher Cox, Eagles star defensive tackle and the richest man ever to come out of tiny Yazoo City, Mississippi. "It's mind-blowing," Cox said of the six-year, $103 million contract he signed on Thursday. "When you're dealing with that much money, it's really mind-blowing, and I'm really excited about it. " Ya think? Cox, the best athlete currently playing in Philadelphia, reportedly received a $26 million signing bonus with $63 million of the deal guaranteed.

No matter how you or I or Howie Roseman or Doug Pederson or Tom Condon came down on the question that has defined the Eagles' offseason and will define their future - what should this team do at quarterback? - everyone could agree on the discussion's underpinnings. Everyone understood the choices that the Eagles, in pursuing and acquiring Carson Wentz, would have to make, the smaller questions implicit in that bigger one. Taking Sam Bradford's playing career and injury history into consideration, would it be smarter to commit to him than it would be to go after the No. 2 pick in the draft and, in turn, Wentz?

YOU COULD almost hear the briefcase clicking shut Monday evening. That's when Howie Roseman finished a four-month negotiation with Fletcher Cox, perhaps already the best defensive tackle in Eagles history and probably the best athlete in the city, depending on how you regard Claude Giroux. According to ESPN, Cox, 25, agreed to a six-year, $103 million contract extension, $63 million of it guaranteed in various manners. It might turn out to be the most guaranteed money a non-quarterback has ever made, but NFL contracts are specious documents full of misdirection and hidden intent.

With the exception of whatever comes over the police scanner, the Eagles are entering radio silence for the next six weeks, with new head coach Doug Pederson having maneuvered the team well enough through one phase of a transition that still holds a few hazards. More than anything, what Pederson has brought to the team, along with a jaw line that could cleave concrete, is a sense of comfort and familiarity. At the locker room level, he speaks the language of the players and doesn't trouble them with nonsense about wearing sleep monitors at home, or tracking their ergonomic efficiency through the day, or pushing them at a pace that negates learning and becomes pointless busy work.

NOW THAT the Eagles have completed the shorts-and-two-hand-touch portion of their schedule and head off for some well-deserved R & R before the start of Camp Pederson in late July, I'd like to take a moment to offer some unsolicited advice to their "passionate" fans: Let it go. By "it," I mean your over-the-top anger toward quarterback Sam Bradford over his late-April trade request and two-week NovaCare boycott after the Eagles moved up to...

TRAINING CAMP is a far-away, shimmering dot on the horizon. The NFL season is as distant in one direction as March Madness is in the other. But right now, the Eagles rookie poised to make the biggest 2016 contribution is . . . Jalen Mills? This is not often the case for someone selected in the seventh round of the draft, but the circumstances are unusual. First, because of the tradeups for quarterback Carson Wentz, who isn't scheduled to start right away, the Birds didn't have a pick between No. 2 overall and No. 79, in the third round, when they took Oregon State guard Isaac Seumalo.

FLETCHER COX and Darren Sproles, absent from Eagles drills all spring, took the field Tuesday for the first day of the team's three-day mandatory minicamp, but there was a twist. Though Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Cox and Sproles would both be limited participants, eased back in to avoid injury, that seemed to be the case only for Cox, who did no team work at all, participating only in position drills. Sproles seemed to do everything, including returning punts. Neither Cox nor Sproles was available during the time reporters were allowed in the locker room.
